My philosophy is to provide patients with proper treatment in a complete and conservative manner. I believe treatment should be no more than is needed and no less than is essential.


I practiced as a general dentist for 2.5 years before finding my passion and specializing in periodontics. I have been practicing dentistry since 2003 and am from a family of dentists. Dentistry is surely in my blood, as his wife, Minh, is also a dentist. My wife and I enjoy spending quality time with our daughter, Linh, and also enjoy outdoor activities around San Diego, such as biking, kayaking, relaxing at the beach, hiking, and playing tennis. I also enjoy all types of food.

My favorite vacation spot is Hawaii, but I also enjoy all beach settings. My best vacation so far was probably adventure in central Costa Rica near the volcano Arenal. I enjoy all types of movies, and my favorite TV show of all time is The Wire. My favorite food is a well-cooked bone-in ribeye.
